Large loose terminal bunches of daisy flower heads 12-25 mm across and 10-16 rays per flower occur in spring. An excellent shrub for native gardens.
Endemic to NSW, Qld, Tas and Victoria.
Prefers a light to medium well-drained soil in a protected partially shaded position. Frost resistant but drought tender
Although seed can be sown most of the year in Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 15-20°C
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
